A common Korean skincare routine usually consists of up to 10 steps. However, if you’re looking to build a basic Korean skincare routine that works great for beginners, here is a basic and shorter version.
Double-Cleanse Your Skin
The first step in your skincare routine should be cleansing. It is an important practice to remove any impurities, oil, or sweat accumulated during the day and night. Hence, it’s best to cleanse your face twice a day.
Start off with a makeup remover such as the WonderDewi Cica Makeup Remover. It’ll not only help to remove your makeup and sunscreen, but it can also remove any sebum or oil-based impurities.
After that, proceed to use a cleanser to remove any remaining impurities. You should opt for a cleanser that’s safe enough to be used for all skin types, such as the WonderDewi Cica Cleansing Gel. The pH level is between 5.5 to 6.5, which is the recommended level for cleansers to effectively remove impurities without stripping off your skin’s natural moisture.
Exfoliate Your Skin
Though exfoliating is not usually included in a Korean skincare routine, using an exfoliator every now and then could be beneficial for your skin as it helps to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores.
The WonderDewi Cica Gentle Scrub is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin, as the formula consists of a plant-based acid complex so it isn’t too harsh on the skin.
Pat on Toner
Now that your skin is completely cleaned, it’s time to hydrate your skin! Your skin’s pH levels will change after using a cleanser. Toners will help to bring it back to the regular level of 5.5. Hence, toner is a must in the Korean skincare routine.
The rule of thumb for any skin type is to go for toners that do not contain any alcohol, menthol, fragrances, or witch hazel as they could cause skin irritation. Instead, opt for toners that have soothing and hydrating ingredients such as the WonderDewi Cica Toner.
It contains betaine and sodium hyaluronate which are known to soothe, calm, and hydrate the skin. Another key ingredient would be the Centella Asiatica which reduces skin irritation and restores the skin’s natural moisture barrier.
Apply a Moisturiser
One of the main steps in our basic Korean skincare routine would be to moisturise your face. A moisturiser that would suit all skin types would be one that is free of oil and fragrance such as the WonderDewi Cica Moisturiser.
It’s lightweight and non-greasy, making it suitable for oily skin too. With hydrating and soothing ingredients such as Panthenol, Tea Tree, and Squalene, it’ll protect and calm the skin effectively.
Protect With Sunscreen
The harmful UV rays from the sun could cause skin damage. Hence, using sunscreen is one of the most important steps! The WonderDewi Cica Sunscreen is extremely effective at protecting your skin thanks to its key ingredients, niacinamide and tocopherol. These two ingredients work hand in hand by protecting, repairing, and strengthening the skin.
